  1. Judge:
    Not necessarily surprised and, despite being against the ultimate punishment, I can’t help but wonder: if you don’t give the death penalty to this defendant then who are you going it give it to? And yet…putting in motion the state’s death machinery, likely culminating in the end of a human life, should always give one (at the very least) pause for thought.

  2. For some crimes what other punishment works?

    My own feeling is that the death penalty should be seldom inflicted but available when absolutely necessary.

    Now that is wishy- washy.

  3. My view is that because it is an imperfect process and you should save the parts. I know but don’t care that sometimes the parts are not worth saving and there is no reason to doubt the person was guilty. I also wonder if Mr. Tsarnaev will be executed during my lifetime.
